Dependable meals

We like Glenn's, stop there almost every time we travel from Edmonton to Calgary and/or return. They are not the cheapest but the food is good and dependable. Also, their water is NOT your usual well water which in Red Deer tastes horrible.

My wife and I along with my family as they were growing up, went to this restaurant many many times and even though it has been a number of months since we visited last, this place continues to impress.

I like the down to earth servers and reasonable prices here. I can get a good eggs Benny and tea for a fraction of the price of some other breakfast places. Tea selection is enormous and cool (and cheaper than chains like teaopia).

Thank You for Your comments! We do have a great tea selection. Visit our website at glens-restaurant.com to view the teas. Our eggs benedict is appreciated by a lot of people on our buffets on Saturday and Sunday. We serve breakfast from 6:30AM to 10:00 PM everyday! Come again! We hope to see you soon! More

This is a horrible establishment. I visited Glenns for lunch and then I decided to go check out the gift shop next door. BIG MISTAKE. I felt very unwelcome and the manager is very rude. I will not return and will not suggest that anyone visit here.

The only reason this gets a 2 from me is because of their tea selection to purchase. Don't eat here unless you don't mind wasting your money. I ordered the mixed fruit and yogurt bowl and got a big bowl of plain yogurt with 8 blueberries places at intervals around the bowl and got charged $8.00 for that! My friend... More

So Sorry, you were disappointed with the Yogurt and Berries! Along with the Yogurt comes 2 oz. of berries and 2 oz. of granola. We don't know who made the mistake by not putting granola on the yogurt. Your server should have picked up on your displeasure and taken the item back to the kitchen. Part of the issue is... More

I love going here when I am missing a good home cooked meal..but I must add that I think the prices are way too high for a lot of items. I would check the menu closely before ordering.

we have returned to this restaurant many times. service, food , decor, are excellent. Great for a meal or just a tea or coffee and a visit with your friends or family.Absolutely better in so many ways compared to eating at fast food places,that have poor service and poor food that often causes short term illness.

Thank You! Glenn and his employees take pride in their work. We pay a lot of attention to cleanliness of the entire restaurant. Our all- day breakfast is well known for being reasonably priced and good quality. Our servers are a great bunch of people who care about the food and service they give the customers!

Stopping for a break midway between Edmonton and Calgary the meals are consistently delicious. Great variety and prepared with care. Located on Leva Avenue or Gasoline Alley, it's easy to access from the highway. I have tried other restaurants in this area but always find I would rather have eaten at Glenn's. In the foyer is a large tea dispensary... More

Went to Glenn's Family Restaurant Sunday with my wife for breakfast. The restaurant is family owned and has been a favorite of ours for years. Excellent service and great food. They did some renovations in January by adding a hardwood floor. The restaurant is clean and the atmospher is friendly and warm. Definitely recommended.
